Gliberal Goddesses

Today, we inaugurated a new segment on the show - The Gliberal Goddesses! It's GottaLaff, Amy Simon and myself talking about things that women talk about, the way women talk about them.

Today we discussed the Ray Rice domestic violence case and the NFL's sad response to it.

So great to hear from Keith Olbermann again! While I agree with him, I also agree with Whoopi Goldberg

We also discussed some Pat Robertson insanity (nothing new there), and the most outrageous comment of the day, this time from Geraldo Rivera...

I don't think we'll have trouble filling this segment in the future. We'll have to decide whether to do it in Laffy's spot every other week or schedule a separate show in the afternoon so Laffy can get her beauty rest in. Stay tuned!

In the first hour, I spoke with Rev. Jasmine Beach-Ferrara, executive director of the Campaign for Southern Equality, about the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruling in Bostic v. Schaefer upholding the decision to strike down Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage! The dominoes are falling in the fight against marriage equality..

More tomorrow, radio or not!

2008 Summer TCA Tour - Day 14

I spent a couple of incredible years at out local college station and it was incredibly fun and educational. Good on Keith!

Keith Olbermann has given a significant donation to WVBR-FM, the radio station in Ithaca, N.Y. where his career arguably began when he was a student at Cornell University.

Olbermann’s gift will allow WVBR – a commercial radio station run entirely by Cornell students – to move into a new, bigger facility much closer to the Cornell campus. The new building on East Buffalo Street in Ithaca will be named Olbermann-Corneliess Studios, after Olbermann’s late father Theodore Olbermann and Glenn Corneliess, a former program director at the station and a friend of Olbermann’s who died in 1996 at 39.

I couldn't help myself, I tweeted this link over to Keith Olbermann.

Via Fishbowl NY:

oof

I caught up with Eliot Spitzer while he was waiting for his guest to arrive and asked him how he’s faring over at Current TV. “Nobody’s watching, but I’m having a great time,” he told me. “I don’t mean to be facetious, but I am really enjoying myself. It’s like having a cocktail party with friends every night.” Pausing for a moment he added, “Somebody needs to buy the network.” And perhaps they will, he mused, if for no other reason than to snap up Current’s distribution system.  

ouch smallerIn case you missed it, Keith Olbermann sued Current TV.
